What is Prime Day?

If you haven’t subscribed to Amazon Prime, you might be confused about the hubbub surrounding these particular days. Let’s first cover our basics: Prime Day started in 2015 to mark the multinational’s 20th birthday. Customers worldwide quickly saw the value in this sale, and the items sold exceeded those in the previous year’s Black Friday, proving that Amazon was a force to be reckoned with in the global market.

Prime Day hence presents Amazon as your one-stop-shop with exclusive deals and wacky discounts on all your favorite products, whether it’s fashion, lifestyle, tech, fitness, or more. Sure, non-Prime members get good deals now and then, but nothing compares to the excellent offers Amazon has for its members. You can always register for Amazon Prime’s free 30-day trial in July and cancel your subscription (unless you’re addicted to Amazon Originals like us!) at the end of the month.

Prime Day happens once a year (or maybe twice from now on) so make sure you make the best of it! Have your shopping lists ready, and hop on to Amazon to check this year’s exclusive deals on tech items and much more.
